About Us

What Are We All About?

We believe that there is a need for IT companies and Web Design firms specifically to provide excellent service and quality delivery of product.

Prior to Deepweb, Steven and Joanne Gardner, ran Customer Support Teams for large corporate clients and in this environment saw the value of great customer service and the building of great relationships with our clients.

By bringing this focus to Deepweb, we believe this is where we stand apart.

We have a great many clients, and they are great clients. We enjoy the time we spend helping them achieve their goals online.

Located in Kerikeri, Bay of Islands, we provide web design and other internet services to clients in Northland, Auckland and all around New Zealand and in Australia.

What do we bring to the table?

We have a wide range of skills, from the customer service focus to more specific IT and Web skills.

We started out 16 years ago building hand coded websites from scratch, we frowned upon the cookie cutter templates at the time that were neither original or flexible (in our view)  the website market was young and gullible and so were we…we got sucked into scams that offered help and took our money without giving help or in fact anything…we were new kids on the block and we got taken for a ride or two!  Learning from the school of hard knocks has given us advantages that we pass on to our clients every day.  We swear by WordPress templates and we are able to turn them into almost anything the client wants.  We build mobile friendly, responsive templates but more than that we endeavour to keep up with Googles changing expectations for a great website. Hence WordPress is a key member of our team.
